Happy Birthday JONAH!!!!

Today my baby boy turns 2!!!  He was born 12.28.2008 at 3:37am weighing 9lbs. 1 oz and 21 3/4 inches long! Labor was not long and I was only at the hospital 3 short hours before he was born!

Of course... my external hard drive with all by pictures isn't working... so this is one of the only ones of Jonah as a baby that I have on my hard drive - and it's in black and white! He is a couple months old here and just adored his sister... and she him!

In his honor I am offering a 15% discount TODAY ONLY on your entire purchase from my little shop! Enter code word BIRTHDAYJM at checkout to take advantage of this birthday deal!!

Thirty-One Giveaway!!

I am soooo thrilled to be doing this giveaway! One of my blog followers, Lauren, contacted me and asked if I would be interested in doing a giveaway. She is a consultant for Thirty-one. What is Thirty-one? Well.... let me tell you!

Thirty-one is a super great business that offers just about everything a woman could want or need! It was started by a mom who was looking for a way to make boutique shopping easier. She created this company to help busy woman - who are always on the go whether it's a full-time job, or full-time mommy-hood - to be able to get all those cute boutique and specialty items without having to spend hours and hours at various stores.

They offer beautiful prints and embroidery on just about all items! It makes a great gift for a friend, a teacher, or yourself!

 Thirty-one has a large selection of bags: purses, caddy's, totes, backpacks, handbags, diaper bags, wallets, phone cases, and so much more!

I LOVE this item!!! It is a purse with a purse skirt! (pg 13 on the online catalog). What you do is this, you purchase the cute little purse. Then you can buy several purse skirts. Each skirt fits over the existing purse. It is just like having 5 different purses... but you never have to take your items out of your current purse... just change the skirt! How awesome is that!?!?

Plus, if you are looking for a little something better... Thirty-one has totally awesome specials going on and more specials to come at the beginning of next year! 

So, are you interested??! Want to try out a Thirty-one product of your own?

Lauren has graciously offered one lucky person their very own "Littles Carry-All Caddy". She sent me one to see and use... and I totally love it! It is the perfect size for storing make-up, giving a gift in, organizing your home office, bedroom, or car, or just about anything else you can think of!

Here is how to enter:
Mandatory Entry: Visit Lauren's Thirty-one consultant page. Browse through the catalog and tell me what item you would absolutely L-O-V-E to get!

1 additional entry: Become a KdBuggie Boutique Follower!
1 additional entry:  Become a fan of KdBuggie Boutique on Facebook.
1 additional entry: Leave a comment on my facebook page that you are entering this giveaway (this is an easy entry!) 
1 additional entry: Become a fan of Lauren's 31 Gifts for you Facebook page and leave a comment that you are visiting from this giveaway!
3 additional entries: Blog about this giveaway. Leave me the link and 3 comments (one for each entry!)

All entries must be received by Midnight PST on January 2, 2011 (so you have lots of time to get all those entries in!)

Mabel's Labels Review and Giveaway!

***Giveaway is now closed!***

I have a totally awesome review and giveaway for everyone today! A while back I contacted Mabel's Labels to see about doing a review and giveaway of one of their products. I was so pleased that not only did they let me do the review, but that they have put together a great giveaway!!!!

Mabel's Labels are the best labels I have come across. For those of you who don't know, my son has life threatening food allergies. We have to take food for him everywhere we go. I bought a set of small tupperware containers for that purpose and have put his labels on them. I don't have a dishwasher, but I have tried really scrubbing those labels... and they stay put! They are made to be dishwasher safe too!!

These labels are great for so many purposes!!!
Sticky Labels: Label baby bottles so when your baby goes to daycare or a sitter you make sure you get your bottles back!

 Tag Mates: Put your name on your personal electronics! Then at the next family reunion if you accidentally set your camera down, everyone knows who it blongs to!

Shoe Labels: Do you take your kids to those indoor play places?!?! Why not label their shoes so that you make sure the shoes your child puts no after playing are his!! These labels are tough... they don't come off while wearing!

 Teeny Tags: School aged kids can use the name tags for their backpacks, lunchboxes, and pencil cases. Then if they forget it in the cafeteria, or drop it on the playground it can be returned to them!

Household Labels: Looking to get a little more organized? (really... who isn't?) Try using their labels in your kitchen. All labels are dishwasher and microwave safe making them perfect for kitchen use! They are also great for labeling containers of your crafting supplies!!!

 Kids Safety Products: If your child has food allergies like mine does, consider getting labels for their food containers that explain exactly what their allergies are. Especially if your child is in daycare or school!

Now that you have seen some of the products that they offer, here is what they are offering to giveaway to one lucky reader:

The Colorful Essentials Combo Pack - a $48 value!!

Combo pack includes:
-30 Sticky Labels
-40 Iron on Labels OR 70 tag mates labels (sticky ones)
-12 shoe labels
-2 teeny tags

You can choose the color and the icon that you want on your labels!

Here is how to enter:

Mandatory Entry:  You must visit the Mabel's Labels website and tell me what product you are most interested in and what you would use it for!

*1 Additional Entry: Be a KdBuggie Boutique Follower (GFC). If you are already a follower leave a comment saying so.

*1 Additional Entry: Become a fan of both KdBuggie Boutique and Mabel's Labels on Facebook.

*3 Additional Entries: Blog about this giveaway. Leave me 3 seperate comments and the link to your post.

All entries must be received by Midnight PST on November 15th! Winner will be announced on Friday November 19th!!!
